Top 25 podcast episodes to listen to this month

Do you listen to podcasts?

If not and you want to start, this blog post is a great place to begin!

When I first started listening to podcasts, it took me a while to find the shows I liked and even when I found shows I liked, I didn’t always love every episode. It can be hard to get into podcasts if you’re not sure where to start and it’s hard to keep up with this positive habit if you haven’t found any shows that resonate with you.

I know I always appreciate it when friends send me specific episodes with links. It makes it easy and extra motivating!

That’s why I wanted to create a list of podcast episodes with direct links to help you get in the habit of listening to podcasts regularly! If you’re already an avid podcast listener, I hope I share some new episodes with you and if you have any favourites, please share them in the comments section below.

Listening to podcasts helps expand your consciousness, helps improve your cognitive function and your imagination, plus you learn lots and hear really cool stories! Much like meditation, listening to podcasts is like exercising your mind like a muscle! Listening to podcasts about self-development is great, but that’s not necessarily what we’re getting at here. Just listening and learning from different podcasts in general is a great way to focus on self-development. Everyone likes learning about different things and hearing different stories.

The How I built this podcast is great for anyone who is entrepreneurial or simply likes to listen to cool, interesting and inspiring stories about businesses and how they exploded! Each episode is 30 min to an hour and you’ll feel like you read the CEO’s autobiography!

Ok, it was tough to only mention and link three episodes from Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations. Let’s face it, it’s Oprah!
